Kilmore was awarded the 2007 Branch Impact Award for the Maryland Landscape Management branch, an award that is presented to branch employee whose outstanding dedication and contribution have made a positive impact on the organization. Kilmore holds a degree in Landscape Contracting Management from Penn State, is a certified landscape technician (CLT). He currently resides with his wife, Molly, in Mt. Airy, Md.
